Arrow McLaren Race Director Gavin Ward says that the team aim to end the season on a high this weekend as the NTT INDYCAR SERIES prepares for the final race of the year, the Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.
We’re heading into the final race weekend of 2023 with our heads held high. It was good to get Felix and the No. 6 team on the podium last weekend, marking the 10th podium for Arrow McLaren this season. We’ll start this week testing out the new surface at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca and then hopefully wrap up on a high note come race day.”
The race will be the last outing for Felix Rosenqvist in the No.6 NTT DATA Arrow McLaren Chevrolet before he moves to Meyer Shank Racing for 2024.
I’m pumped for the last race of the season. Laguna is a place where I’ve enjoyed a lot of success, and coming off a strong result in Portland, the only aim for me will be to try and get that first win of the season for Arrow McLaren.
Alexander Rossi in the No.7 VELO Chevrolet can’t believe his first season with Arrow McLaren has come to an end saying:
”I can’t believe the end of the year is already here. It seems like just yesterday was my first day with the team. While there have been ups and downs, I’m happy with what we’ve accomplished and hope to get a win before we head into what will be an intense offseason.”
Pato O’Ward in the No.5 Arrow McLaren Chevrolet is looking forward to the final race of the season saying:
“One last rodeo for the 2023 season. It’s an enjoyable track to drive, even though I haven’t had the result there in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES that I’ve been hoping for the last couple of years. Hopefully this time is the charm. The track is repaved, so I’m looking forward to that new challenge and making it a good one for all of us on the team.”
